This posting is in response to Helen from Ireland. Please do not be afraid to attend
college because you are afraid of Math. I too am a bit slow in Math, but I excel in English and foriegn languages as well as speech and writing classes. To overcome my fear of math, I realized my strengths at the time of my last formal math class and picked up where I left off. Doing so meant that I had to start my college career off with a basic math class. Trust me, after a semester of basic math you will realize that you know more about math than you think.
